D. Mikey has been RMR fam since our days together at Central Washington University over in Ellensburg. These days, he’s been living in the lab with 18 Hundred and Intylekt making the kind of boom bap music Seattle hip-hop was built on. His new record, Hol Up, is as boom bap as they come and the perfect track to roll a nice joint.
Hold up… or sorry… ‘Hol’ Up,’ released in August, is more of a summertime cookout feel but I got it on today and can almost feel the sun (the sun isn’t up yet). The tracks sounds like it sampled ‘I Wanna Freak You’ by Jodeci but the drums give an early 90s hip-hop feel and D. Mikey comes with the ever smooth flow.
